Have you looked at the library. There is so much there.

Have you participated in any of the challenges?

I did quite a bit in the Christmas one and in the hymn one.

Think I'll go back to the method section and see if I can make some progress towards completing level 3.


Library is to hard or to easy, I'm in the middle wink So i search on musescore a song I like and upload it in Marvel, much more fun.
I did the christmas challenge Rank 18 50 Club Vera A. 82 songs

Wow, I spoke too soon about having it all ready. I had a beautiful setup but lost the room (ugly story). I have a little corner of the man cave that everything could just barely fit into but I knew it would be hard. None of the studs were where I needed them to be and it turned out that the corner is a Bermuda Triangle for WIFI. Worse, the only way to pull a network cable is to spend pull all the trim and curse for an entire day, though that last part may just be an Irish thing. I'm not a fan of powerline adapters but I ended up using one here and I eventually got a rock solid internet connection. I still have a rat's nest of cabling showing through the back of the piano but that can wait. I am going to practice and enjoy myself for a while...

I recognize the problem, I have to sacrifice a bed here in the spare room to be able to install my piano. My piano has a back wall so the cables are not visible. Your picture is almost identical. My pc speakers are black thoug :p Enjoy!

A practical question, I would like to practice with headphones. The problem is that the music of Marvel comes from the speakers of the PC and the digital piano has its own speakers. So I have to choose, and I can't because I have to hear both of them. Someone a solution? Maybe software program or so?

If your digital piano has Line In - you can route the speaker output of PC into the Line In of digital piano and then use the headphones with the digital piano. Be careful to make sure that Line In volume is not so high that it can damage the digital piano speakers.

I have exactly solved this problem for myself smile

What I do is to use this cute and inexpensive thing:

...combined with some cables and adapters. If you want to do the same, tell me the size of the plug on your headphones and the size of the sockets on your piano and your computer, and I can give you some details on the hookup.

Yes, true. Sadly, my particular DP (FP-30) doesn't have a line-in so I have had to resort to an external mixer.

I use the same mixer as TS. PianoMarvel does have a feature that will let you turn the volume all the way down and hear everything through the PC, into which you plug headphones. I tried it but I disliked the generated MIDI piano sound so much that I bought the mixer.

If your piano has a line in I would definitely try that idea.

Yeah, no, that thread just makes me want things I don't need. My discarded computer hardware and low end piano would only depress those folks. But make no mistake, I am content with what I have. It ain't the hardware holding me back.

I haven't gotten so far myself. Currently rank 51 in 40 club (Lana L.) But it's nice they extended it until.the 31st which I discovered today. Not that it matters but it gives me something to work on.

Same here, that virtual piano thing in Marvel is terrible.

For a less technical set up I used over the ear headphones hooked to my piano and in ear ones connected to the PC. It is not the comfiest but is 100% silent. I currently do not have a pianomarvel subscription as practising what my teacher recommends plus “life” don’t leave with enough free time but this is what I did when I had one.

I noticed that after the Christmas challenge my sight reading was very much improved. You learn to use other notes than just F and G key. Definitely do further, have fun.

I found aux in-out on the back of my piano...next to the midi. Can I use that? Connect it to my computer?

I think the process would be to turn the sound level on the PC all the way down, connect the PC headphone jack to aux-in, then start playing PM on the PC while carefully raising the sound level on the PC until you can hear PM and the piano equally well. If it works you might not need a mixer.

A Christmas present for all of my piano Marvel friends on the forum. I asked the Marvel team last if it was not possible to share an entire folder instead of 1 song. And it can now. With this I share my Favorites folder, from Level 1 to 7 with all those who want it. Everything chopped and minced. Please send your email address (the one you use to log in in Marvel) in private message. They are songs that I like, not too fast and not too difficult. Hope you like them, enjoy and Merry Christmas blush
